PART IV - THE EAST
CHAPTER VII - ADRIFT IN INDIA

This is the land of heroism, where deeds which would have been brutal elsewhere have been touched with glory. In Europe heroism has become joyless or slunk to museums : it exists as a living spell here. The civilization of Jodhpur, though limited, has never ceased to grow. It has not spread far or excelled in the arts, but it is as surely alive as the civilization of Agra is dead. Not as a poignant memory does it touch the heart of the son or the stranger. And when it does die, may it find a death complete and unbroken ; may it never survive archxologically, or hear, like Delhi, the trumpets of an official resurrection. One would wish for the sand to close in on the city, and the purple stones to show more frequently than they do through the soil ; for the desert to resume the life it gave, and unobserved by men take back the dragon's crown. The wish may be granted. The kindred State of Jaisalmer struggles up to its throat against such a death, and 'will only be saved by a railway.' Railways can create. They cannot save, and for my own part I would leave heroes to heroic graves, and concentrate the blessings of progress upon the new Canal Colonies in. the Punjab.
Midday. A loud and unscientific explosion. ' Everyone remains alive. The soldiers run laughing into the cool of the passage, and fall asleep there.

OUR friend-I will call him Obaidulla and give the account, which, greatly agitated, he poured forth to us on the roof of his house-our friend and his brother had been sitting in the verandah unpacking some books, when an old man approached. His appearance was ruffianly. ' Good evening, gentlemen,' he said. 'Will you please subscribe to my son's railway journey, in order that he may reach Calcutta ? ' and he produced a forged subscription list. But he was a suppliant, a Moslem, and old. ' I am a poor man myself,' said our friend. ' However, if your son will accept two rupees '-and he gave them:
` I think you have come here to practise as a barrister,' remarked the old man, as he sat down.
